I don’t know about the rest of you, but the recent upheavals around these parts have left me in sore need of several stiff drinks and the company of some like-minded friends. Let's meet at the Crown Tavern on Saturday 31 May to doff our caps and wave goodbye to the inimitable jessamyn, goodnewsfortheinsane and LobsterMitten! [more inside]

I moved to London last year but I have not managed to meet up with any London mefites yet, I feel like it would be fun to go to a pub and meet you guys. Perhaps we can bring board games or card games to play? The Penderel's Oak is a pub(wetherspoons) in the centre that I know is nice and big - would anyone like to have a london mefi meetup there next month?
Edit: OK, 5th of April Then, I will bring a sign with a mefi logo on it and will be there from 7 till whenever. Please bring games if you have them. :)

I'll be in London near Lincoln's Inn Fields next week, from Sunday to noon Thursday. Any London mefites want to meet a mefite from the U.S.? I have no car but a sense of adventure. I'll buy you a pint, of whatever.

The London meetups are shapin' up! Plans for Friday are here
; this is the Saturday thread. Please feel free to simply show up to any/all of this fun. Let's start with the Science Museum
at 1pm. We'll meet right out front, here
. Then roughly about 4pm, let's head over to Taqueria
for Mexican food, here
. Then off to begin the pub crawl, starting at 6pm at The Slaughtered Lamb
This is a google map
of the day.
Original post: I'll be in London from 27 Sept (Thursday) - 1 Oct (Monday), mostly at the London International Tattoo Convention. I'm open to doing and seeing other things as well...schedule is fairly open. At the very least, let's do a meetup. And if anybody would like to join me at the convention, that'd be great too. Or something else fun. (Updated meetup details within) [more inside]

Hi! I've got this train ticket to London burning a hole in my pocket. It's for Saturday, July 7th and I should arrive around 12:30. What say we do a meetup that day/evening? Who's in and what shall we do?
Update: meetup back to proposed. I still have a train ticket, but can reschedule it for another weekend (granted I make the change by the 7th). Any Londonders wanna meet up?

Good Mefites of London: last year when I visited London, and only gave myself three days, I said "I should come back next year and stay a bit longer." This year, I am indeed doing that (from 27 May to 2 June); it has been proposed we start with cocktails here, and then a meal after. [more inside]

I'm in London the first weekend of March. Presumably many of you are in London then too (or always are). Let's meet up! [Specifically: we'll meet at noon on March 4 at Marble Arch - essexjan says it's at the right corner of Hyde Park for Speaker's Corner, and you can't miss it, it's a huge great marble arch in the middle of the road.
As linked in this comment
, we'll head to Richoux afterwards, specifically the one at Mayfair at 41a South Audley Street. Might be sooner rather than later if the talk about rain is truth. [more inside]

How better to fend off the post-Christmas gloom than another bout of pub trivia? We had a great time at the Hat and Tun
last October - it was practically the social event of the season
- and I'd like to do it again, with or without our Redditor nemeses (not that they were our nemeses, AS WE ALL KNOW...). [more inside]

is the first production by the new opera company I've founded, Dioneo
. We'll be staging it at the Cello Factory
near Waterloo, London, on the evenings of April 5, 6, 8 and 9 (but not 7.) It's a one-act opera, about an hour long. We at Dioneo believe that opera should be available to everyone, so we've priced tickets at only £12. The venue is intimate and only seats 60, so advance booking is recommended. You can book online here. [more inside]

I'll be playing some of my songs from albums new, old and as yet unrecorded at the lovely Phibbers bar on the Holloway Road, and it would be lovely to combine that with a drink with some fellow Mefites. The music is sort of bluesy folk-rock - you can have a listen here
to see if it's your kind of thing. Other acts on the bill TBC - it's 3 on the door and I'll be playing a half hour set from 8.30pm.

to catch-up with old friends and make some new ones. However, our schedule is rather tight, so we hope folks will be okay with our selecting the date, while you lot pick a place to make merry. [more inside]

Hi Mefites -- Mrs. Dream and I will be in London on vacation later this month. Anyone interested in a Sunday meetup on October 24th?
Let's meet at Walkers of Whitehall
at 1pm for lunch and drinks, then walk down to Churchill's War Room
, which is open until 6pm. Get as drunk as you like in honor of Churchill.
I'll set up a MeFi sign on the table at Walkers. I'll update later with a phone number if I'm successful in jailbreaking my iphone and getting a SIM card.

Metafiltrians of London, I will be in the capital on the evening of the 21st: does anyone fancy a wee meetup? I haven't yet sorted out accommodation and so forth, but I expect I'll be somewhere in the approximate vicinity of Imperial College. If people are up for it and know a good place to go nearby, please suggest it; I barely know London at all, so I'm relying on youse for ideas. I wasn't thinking of anything big, probably just drinks and maybe a meal. Hopefully see you in a week or so's time!
